Best Of Rest .....

BEST OF THE REST:

Here’s something to test your knowledge of Oiler players who were not ‘Stars’ and are not current players.

First … the rules:

You cannot name these players:
Gretzky, Messier, Kurri, Anderson, Coffey, Fuhr, Ranford, C. Joseph, Lowe, Weight, Simpson, Semenko, Brown, McSorley, Laraque, Smith, Smyth and Pronger [just because]

.... and NO current players.

Here are the catagories:

Best skater
Best fighter [non-goon]
Best stick handler
Best Passer
Best grinder
Best defensive forward/checker
Best defenseman
Toughest defensemen
Best pure goal scorer
Best Goalie
Biggest disappointment
Best hitter
Dirtiest player
Biggest surprise
Best floater
Best Leader
Best shot

Have at it!!

Linseman and Tikk probably deserve some mention in some category, but Grier and Marchment are damn fine choices as well.

I think the OP meant nobody currently playing for the Oilers.

ummm, i think petr klima = best floater by a mile.
just my opinion though.

If I have time I will try to figure out what I think about the rest, but I thought petr should get mentioned for that one.

Probably none since he wasn't supposed to be picked.

Wouldn't Chimera and Ruotsalainen be dueling it out for best skater?

I think we overrate Marchant's skating rather significantly.

not over rated, just judged differently..

Chimera and Ruotsalainen are better technical skaters, but never got to the net and had as many speed created scoring chances as Marchant..

Marchant's lack of hands kept him from a few 40 goal seasons
